How does living in a student apartment complement the student experience?
What is the advantage of an individual lease?
So many of us can recall a situation where our personal credit was spoiled because a roommate was not motivated to pay his/her portion of the rent on time. With individual leasing, we removed that threat and other unnecessary stress from the rental equation. Your student is the only name on the lease and he/she is responsible for payment of his or her bedroom only. “Paying rent” is no longer a collective effort among all occupants of the apartment.
How does my student connect with roommates?
Is there a professional support staff on site?
PCM Management Company staff has been in the business of property management for over a decade. Our size and experience aptly equip us with the people, resources and power to run our communities at the highest quality standard – day in and day out. Within our on-site leasing office is a full-time staff whose job is to facilitate the leasing process and also to manage resident relations. Our maintenance personnel are a dependable and hands-on team dedicated to routine property maintenance and emergency maintenance requests. Residents are encouraged to issue any requests for maintenance assistance online, by phone, or in person at the leasing office. We also employ students who live at each property and serve as CommunityAssistants. Nicknamed “CAs”, they help with leasing, resident events, and administrative tasks. They also serve as liaisons, providing genuine, consistent and valuable feedback from the resident’s perspective.
Are there any additional features included in the rate?
What should we expect for move-in day?
Do I need renter’s insurance?
Preferred Campus Management requires $100,000 in liability insurance coverage for each resident. While residents are free to select any insurance vendor for the coverage, we have partnered with Multifamily Insurance Partners to offer the required liability insurance coverage to our residents at a very competitive rate. MFIP also offers optional renters insurance to cover residents’ personal possessions. For more information on the coverage available, visit MFIP’s website.
What types of housing are available for students?
ON CAMPUS HOUSING
There are many options for students looking for housing and the first choice to make is on-campus or off-campus. When you think of on-campus living the positives of being close to class, friends, and the dining hall can be outweighed by the prospect of living in a residence hall old enough to have housed your parents and sharing a closet-sized bedroom with a roommate who may have a totally different schedule and idea of cleanliness.
When choosing among off campus housing options students can select from traditional multifamily apartments, houses near campus, and student apartment communities.
Multifamily apartment communities have many advantages over on-campus housing, among them are greater space, amenities, and privacy. Drawbacks include splitting utility bills with roommates and being on the hook for 100% of the rent, even your roommates portion.
HOUSES NEAR CAMPUS
Renting a house near campus comes with great freedom to host guests and entertain in your space plus the benefit of not sharing walls with neighbors however many of these houses near campus are not managed by expert property management firms meaning maintenance requests may not be handled quickly or professionally.
